The Edmonton Oilers have signed University of Alberta Golden Bears defenceman Harlan Anderson to an American Hockey League amateur try-out agreement. The Alberta team captain will join the Springfield Falcons this week.

The 6’2”, 200-pound native of Vernon, British Columbia completed his fifth and final season of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) eligibility last weekend, helping lead Alberta to its record setting 13th CIS University Cup national championship.

Anderson enjoyed a very successful season with the Golden Bears in 2007-08 as he scored 18-26-44 in 36 games with Alberta and was named the Canada West Hockey MVP and defenceman-of-the-year. Despite missing the final six games of the conference schedule due to injury, Anderson still managed to lead all defencemen in scoring and finish 12th in the Canada West Hockey scoring race with 11-16-27 in 22 games.In the post-season, Anderson scored a goal and seven assists in seven games, including four assists in three games at the CIS University Cup tournament in Moncton, New Brunswick. A two-time CIS All-Canadian, Anderson was one of two Golden Bears named to the University Cup all-tournament team.

In five seasons at Alberta, Anderson scored 64-117-181 with 170 penalty minutes in 198 career games.
